    Twenty-two peer-reviewed papers cover the latest advances in bearing steel technologies. This information is vital to the service life of practically all automotive products, aerospace main line bearings, industrial machines, rotating equipment in non-industrial industries, manufacturing and processing industries, and energy generation equipment.

    Topics cover:

    • Rolling contact fatigue process and related test methods

    • Material quality related rolling contact fatigue testing

    • Substitute RCF metallurgical test methods

    • Material response analysis and rolling contact fatigue
